Looking at the overall strength of the home market releases this week and there's not a lot to look forward to. If you don't count Rango, which came out on Blu-ray / DVD on Friday, then the biggest hit of the week is Limitless. That film is worth picking up on Blu-ray, but it's not exactly Pick of the Week material. In fact, the best release on this week's list is Once Upon a Time in America, which made its Blu-ray debut at the end of May, but the screener arrived very late. Despite this, I'm awarding it the Pick of the Week.

Once Upon a Time in the West is a film that was unappreciated when it first came out and really struggled at the box office. However, it has aged amazingly well and is considered by many to be one of the greatest Westerns of all time. (This includes Roger Ebert, whose original review is the only negative review on Rotten Tomatoes.) Will I be adding my voice to the choir of praise? Or will I be one of the few dissenters? And if it is the former, does the Blu-ray do the film justice?
